Bruno Rocca 2010
Decanter average score:17pts/20 (90/100pts)
Individual judges’ scores: Andrea Briccarello 17 Stephen Brook 17 Ian D’Agata 17
Closed nose hints at dark cherry, loam, ink and almonds. Then rich and dense with ripe, smooth, dark red cherry fruit kept tightly under wraps by oak. Medium-bodied, sleek and concentrated, with admirable freshness and balance. Stylish and long.
